I started at Jan De Nul as a Technical Support Engineer and recently became part of the server and data center team as a Junior System Engineer. Our team is responsible for the management and maintenance of the central server infrastructure at the offices in Aalst and Luxembourg. We also draw up the plans for the IT infrastructure on our sites and on board of our vessels.
We pass these plans on to our colleagues of the installation team. They then travel to the sites and vessels worldwide to provide them with the necessary IT installations.
That was, by the way, my function when I started at Jan De Nul. I still remember the trip to the Simon Stevin where we had to renew the entire IT installation on board. In normal circumstances, such a job takes two weeks, but after three days already, the vessel suddenly had to leave for a project. That's when you're at a loss for words. By doing as much preparatory work as possible, the team on board was able to continue.
